Candyman gets delayed until 2021

2020 just got even worse

The highly anticipated “Candyman” from director Nia DaCosta has unfortunately been delayed until 2021 from its intended release date of October 16 – which would’ve been just in time for a Halloween horror.

The film, written by Jordan Peele, Win Rosenfeld and DaCosta, has been delayed more than once due to the pandemic-which-shall-not-be-named. DaCosta’s “Candyman” has been described as a “spiritual sequel” to the 1992 slasher movie directed by Bernard Rose.

Based on the ghastly urban legend, the film centers on a struggling artist (portrayed by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) who begins to lose his sanity after discovering the story of Candyman. As the tale goes, if someone says his name to a mirror five times, Candyman will appear and kill whoever summoned him.
